    COTIDIANO EJERCICIO DE ESTILO.

    Al acabar uno de ver 'The Artist' (cinta que ganó sus pingües premios de la Academia a Mejor Película, Director, Actor protagonista, etc.) uno no deja de asombrarse de que, en realidad, le han venido un peine muy caro llena joyas engarzadas. Es decir, la cinta recoge todo un cumulo de referentes que nos retrotraen a la época del Hollywood dorado de los años 20, empezando por el protagonista, una mezcla de Rodolfo Valentino, Errol Flynn…

    "Here is one of the most entertaining films in many a moon, a film that charms because of its story, its performances and because of the sly way it plays with being silent and black and white. "The Artist" knows you're aware it's silent and kids you about it. Not that it's entirely silent, of course; like all silent films were, it's accompanied by music. You know — like in a regular movie when nobody's talking? … I've seen "The…

    The Artist is a film made by people who truly love cinema for people who also do. If I hadn't been aware that it was made in 2011, and if it weren't for some well-known actors who starred in it, I would have sworn I was watching a silent movie from the early '30s. It was so masterfully done and it was made paying so much attention to details that it could have easily been made in those days.

    At the dawn of the 1930’s, sound came into the world of film. All the stars who were so iconic for their roles in the silent film era, from Buster Keaton and Charlie Chaplin to Greta Garbo and Douglas Fairbanks suddenly found their careers in jeopardy. While it was a monumental accomplishment in film history, the transition from silence to sound was not an easy one for the actors and filmmakers who were just starting to excel in the medium…

    George Valentin has it all, looks, stardom, adoring fans and an a faithful dog! Valentin is the star of the silent silver screen and has a string of Hollywood hits behind him. The gravity of his situation is not lost on him and he milks every opportunity to lap up the praise thrown at him by all of his minions, crew and public alike, he seems untouchable.

    After the screening of his latest film, he is posing for photographs outside…

    This French silent film about a silent film star is charming and hilarious for the first half of its runtime. It's less successful when it tries to move from comedy to drama, but it's still an achievement to make a silent movie that captivates modern audiences the way this one does. It's emotionally slight, but a fun couple of hours in the cinema.

    One of the worst Best Picture winners of my lifetime: a boring love story oblivious to its few interesting qualities (He's a shameless narcissist whose convictions are only rooted in self-preservation! She's a potentially dangerous stalker who may or may not want to wear his skin as a suit!) and an ignorant attempted homage that is more fetishism than embodiment. Real talk: I'm no silent-era purist by any criteria, but a talky melodrama that replaces audio recording with subtitles is not a silent film.

    Visually striking self-congratulatory faff.

    And could they chosen a more emotionally manipulative device than that adorable dog? De Sica is rolling over in his grave.
